This came following a successful loan spell in the capital, where Cissé’s impact in the middle was plain to see – quickly becoming a fans favourite.
He made his first professional appearance for French side Amiens, after coming through the Youth Academy at PSG. After 36 appearances for Amiens, he moved to Dijon, where he made 93 appearances for the football club. Cissé bagged his first professional goal against AJ Auxerre in a 2-2 draw in 2014.
Spanish side Rayo Vallecano snapped up the midfielder in 2015 and soon sent him on loan to Belgian team, Waasland-Beveren. Tours would be the next team to have ‘Ouss’ on the books, for whom he made 26 appearances across one season.
MK Dons were Cissé’s first English Club, and he achieved promotion to League One with them in the 18/19 season after the Dons finished third in League Two on the final day of their campaign.
After a spell at Gillingham, Ouss made the permanent switch to E10 – becoming the first permanent signing for The O’s ahead of the 2020/21 season.
